I'd say "I'll get on that" - but I have no access to those settings.

Strange, I can't think of any changes to any settings that may have made this occur. It may take awhile to diagnose as I have nothing to roll back to :?

Last year when I was starting collecting the sales in the middle school holidays were amazing ($30 Leaders at Farmers). However this year next to no stores have had any new generations around for months and even if they did the sales are horrible. I would have thought they would be pushing Transformers toys super hard with the Movie out at the moment .Everyday I check the sightings forums to see if anybody has anything new in the hopes of Voyager Blitzwing and Octone. I imagine when they are out someone will snap them up before I even see them like the Farmers $30 leaders were.

Been a while since I had a realy trivial complaint to whinge about. The fact that the new Nintendo 2DS XL has gone back to the old flip top design, so it's just a cheaper 3d-less NEW 3DS XL. I grew to quite like the simpler hinge-less square that was the 2DS. It really set it apart.

Oh well.

Dropped my phone while out on a walk, cracking the top corner and sending a large crack down the screen and over to one side of the phone
Everything seems to work (though nothing did for around 20 minutes after the drop) but not enough time to get it repaired before heading overseas.

Guess I am purchasing another phone tomorrow

A package taking more time to clear customs then it did to get made by bbts then get to Chicago then to Auckland, last year I had a package clear customs in less then 2 days during the silly season, but 10 days is a little silly

A 4 week history of day long headaches with nausea..... fortunately the CT scan this week showed no brain tumours but for the time being I'm stuck with staggered pain killers through the day.
Still waiting to get in with the optometrist and then an osteopath this week.
no sig as photobucket nerfed it all

Finally getting to Akihabara in Tokyo and while I found Transformers, they were high in price and not in the best condition. Also due to suitcase constraints, the couple I found that could have come home had to be left there as it is cheaper to import from NZ due to needing to post.

Oh how I hate Akihabara. I know there can be good deals but these days it's very rare. I think the reason is because people tend to think Akihabara is great for deals so the locals jack up the prices. Head to Nakano and into Mandarake. There tends to have better selection... although the prices are still quite high I think. If you're after new then bic camera is probably the best but the other electronics stores are similar... Yodobashi, yamada denki/Labi...

How long are you in Singapore btw? Do you know what duty free allowances you have going into Singapore?

I'd also recommend heading to Nakano. There's a massive range of stuff there, and quite a few neat shops to check out in the mall.
